Hardware, Embedded Systems "Leo Apotheker's disastrous tenure as HP's CEO revealed a dysfunctional company struggling for direction after a decade of missteps and scandals. Can his replacement, Meg Whitman, fix the tech giant?" As a consumer, I wish they simplified their product line-up. They have the engineering skills - I just have no idea what I'm supposed to buy when I visit their site. The choice for the ZenBook late last year instead of anything HP had to offer was elementary.

They used to make great calculators though.

Recently they reisued the HP-15C. All of the "Voyager" series are terrific. I have them all, except for the HP-10C.

And I'd kill to get my hands on a HP-71B.

I am not old enough to like those kind of calculators but I really like the TI82-TI83. Can I buy an android app that works the same?

I'm not in to Android, but there are a couple of iOS apps that emulate the HP-12C. I'm sure Android also has some famous calculators emulated.

I still have my HP 40G graphing calculator around. Bought it in the high school days, and it's still awesome for the price today.
